According to the RKD he was a sculptor who learned from his father and became the father of the sculptors Jan, Hendrik, and Abraham Vinckenbrinck.[1] He married Geertruyt Collaert.[1] He made the pulpit for the Nieuwe kerk, and a sketch of this is in the portrait made of him by the Holsteyn brothers. That print claims he was a "sculptor of the city of Amsterdam".[1] According to the Amsterdam Museum he made the statues of David and Goliath now in their café.[2]
